RE: water supply

It is where a trailer set and i wont to turn the water on.Would there be some way the water company can come out and install a water spigot?Would this be a big job?No, it's just plumbing. If one doesn't already exist, you may have to install a backflow preventer.Is this something the water company will do?

water supply

RE: air conditioner

It always helps to list your AC manufacturer and model.I dont know much about the air conditioner except that its ducted.I think it might be a coleman.

air conditioner

I have a ducted rv air conditioner and when i change the thermostat fan speed it stops blowing.If i turn the temp control up and wait for the compressor to kick off it will work as it suppose to.Does anyone have any idea what is going on or is this normal?

RE: air conditioner

I'm curious - is there a control panel with thermostat knob on the A/C itself, and what position it is in? Because on my A/C there is such a knob.This is a separate thermostat on the wall.

RE: air conditioner

Is the thermostat near the kitchen? Does it have a separate off setting, or did you just turn the temperature knob all the way up? Perhaps it was getting warm enough from the cooking to turn on. It's also possible that the thermostat is just plain broken/malfunctioning. One sure way to prevent the air conditioner from running is to manually flip the air conditioner breaker in your electrical distribution panel. Usually there will not be anything else on that circuit.The thermostat is near the kitchen and i had a lot of moisture in the air from cooking because the windows were steaming up.It does have a separate off switch.When you turn it on their is a green light that will come on.Just the opposite i turned it all the way down.The funny thing is the unit wasnt even in use when it happened.Are they supposed to kick on automatic like this when it get to warm even without a heating element? The nature of an air conditioner is that it is SUPPOSED to kick on when the room temp gets warm. Not if thermostat is set to heat and furnace is running Your t-stat was being shorted due to the moisture. Pull cover off t-stat and check connections. Spray with some WD-40 to get rid of the moisture.Will time clear out the moisture?

air conditioner

I have a ducted rv air conditioner.Its an air conditioner only no heating element.It has the thermostant on the wall.I was at the rv today doing some cooking.I had the generator running with the furnace going.The air conditioner was off not being used.I was at the stove and kept hearing a blower come on for a few seconds and stop.At first i thought it was the furnace blower kicking on and off but after investigating i noticed the air condioner was on.It came on all by itself.While it was running i manually turned it on and than back off and it went off.Moments later it came back on all by itself.This time it stayed on and when i went to try the same thing it wouldnt go off.The only way i could get it to turn off was to turn the generator off.I had to leave so i couldnt do much to figure it out but does anyone have any idea what it could be?

RE: rv taxes

You list 'knoxville' as your location..........which I take is Tennessee Are you registering RV in TN or KY? TN INFO (NOT OFFICIAL) KY INFO (NOT OFFICIAL)I originally had it registered and tagged in north carolina and i paid my taxes for a couple of years untill the registration ran out and i didnt renew it because i had it in storage and wasnt using it.I than moved it to a cheaper storage facility in tennesee.I called the dmv in north carolina because it was coming around time to pay my next annual tax payment.They said they had no record of a payment since my registration had ran out so i thought i was good.I now wont to move it to kentucky and get it legal but i am concerned about the taxes that i am pretty certain is gonna come up.I have proof of the couple of yares that i did pay and did make an attempt to keep the payments up but not certain how i could make a payment when they didnt have a record of one.

rv taxes

Quick question.I own an rv that has been in storage for the last three years in kentucky.It has been unregistered and not driven the whole time.Now i am ready to register it and tag it.Will i still have to pay the taxes for the time that it has not been driven or registered?

RE: brake bleeder tool

Speed bleeders would NOT be the way I would do it on an old master cylinder. They rely on the master cylinder being pumped many, many times, with the seals running into areas that are likely rough. Far better to suck the fluid from the wheels and not use the master cylinder at all for the job.Yea this is the way i am gonna go.I will see if it will help if not i guess my next step will be to take it to a shop and get a complete inspection.Thanks for all yor help.
joe0508 11/26/15 11:24pm Tech Issues
RE: brake bleeder tool

Yes, I believe it will do the same job as long as you push sufficient fluid through the system. I like to push enough fluid through to replace the fluid, instead of just bleeding the brakes.Yea i had the same idea.I will siphon all the the fluid from the the reservoir.Than fill it with fresh fluid.Than use the bleeder tool to siphon all the air and contaminated fluid from the system.I figure this should take care of any air that would be trapped in the bore of the mc.Correct me if i am wrong.

RE: brake bleeder tool

To bleed a master cylinder, rig two connections at the outlets of the master cylinder to two tubes that go back up and over down into the reservoirs. Make sure they are full. Have an assistant slowly push down the brake pedal several times until there are no air bubbles. Having said that, I have only bled master cylinders when I was replacing them. The normal routine of bleeding the brake lines is probably sufficient, unless you have some reason to believe that there is a problem with the master cylinder.I am just trying to get an idea if bleeding the the breaks from the calipers will do the same trick of getting the air from the mc?
joe0508 11/25/15 10:48pm Tech Issues
RE: brake bleeder tool

Check master cylinder level......needs to be full Then starting at the brake farthest away from MC bleed brake fluid thru it. If you have a vacuum pump........follow directions that came with that pump Keep MC topped off.....if it goes empty/sucks air into system you have to start all over Changing fluid completely.....suck old out of MC with turkey baster then fill with new. Bleed each wheel position until new fluid shows up (Keep that MC full) Start at farthest postionThis is what i am prepared to do.I am just wondering if it is necessary to bleed the mc first?
joe0508 11/25/15 10:30pm Tech Issues
brake bleeder tool

Can you use a brake bleeder tool to bleed the master cylinder while it is still on the vehicle?How would you do it?I know i can do the calibers with one and plan to but i have read to do a brake bleed correctly you should do the mc first before going to the calibers.

RE: hydroboost diagnosis test

Do you think i should bleed the mc before i bleed the calipers?
joe0508 11/25/15 09:04pm Tech Issues
RE: hydroboost diagnosis test

I am thinking about flushing the brake fluid myself and bleeding the calipers to see if that helps before taking it in but i have a question.It seems the breaks will pump up with the engine running but wont with the off.Will it hurt anything to bleed the breaks with the engine running or is that a bad idea?I just dont see how i am worried if it wont come off the floor no further than what it does i might damage the mc if not already.
